Manila to make it first in Hollywood through Bourne Legacy

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 0
It had been a warm welcomed for the Philippines this year after the hit spy action thriller franchise chooses Manila as their location for its fourth installment film “Bourne Legacy”. Scheduled to be released in theaters Aug. 3, the film was written and is being directed by Tony Gilroy -- who penned the first three films -– and will be the first without Matt Damon playing the title role. Bourne is not a character in the new movie. Jeremy Renner, instead, will portray an agent in the same line of business as Bourne, with Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton co-starring.

The film had already start shooting in the country since January 11 in selected locations in Manila and will also shoot a scene at the country’s pride El Nido, Palawan, an island province known for its pristine beaches and tropical rain forests.

Three Filipino actors were reportedly to play a role in the Hollywood film – Iza Calzado, Sid Lucero and Jericho Rosales. Some local residents particularly in the Leveriza Street were also tapped to play bit roles.
Before the Bourne Manila has a history of being used to portray other cities like Jakarta in Peter Weir’s 1982 drama “The Year of Living Dangerously,” Bangkok in Jonathan Kaplan’s 1999 thriller “Brokedown Palace,” and Panama City in Showtime’s 2000 biopic “Noriega: God’s Favorite.” 

“Legacy,” however, will be the first notable Hollywood movie to represent the capital as itself. Action scenes including a helicopter hovering above the financial district and a long car chase through a major thoroughfare are to be shot in the city, according to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority.

Officials in the Philippines are hoping "Bourne" will play a vital role in elevating the country's profile in Hollywood. "This will generate great interest in our country since [it demonstrates] we can provide the facilities for such big productions,” the Film Development Council of the Philippines said in a statement.

Though there are no film incentives available in the Philippines, the Film Development Council touts its cheap transportation, accommodations and labor, as well as widespread fluency in English as factors that can make the country more attractive to Hollywood filmmakers. “It is also a melting pot culture where locations can be depicted as Asian, Hispanic or prewar American,” the council said.

It’s a matter of “RESPECT” (Pope Benedict XVI’s Pronouncement about gay marriage)

Sunday, January 29, 2012 0
Different theories were presented to discover where the world really came. Some of these were Biblical, Big Bang and Evolution theories that have various explanations to know how earth created. This is somehow an implication that people are all unlike. Every individual will make decisions based on what they believe and what they choose to be. These differences will always have positive and negative results. We can witness the people’s disparities in one of today’s utmost controversies, the Pope Benedict XVI’s Pronouncement on gay marriage.


The Pronouncement
It was Monday, January 9, 2012, during the Annual World Day of Peace Message; Pope Benedict XVI addressed his deepest sentiments before Vatican diplomats from nearly 180 countries stressing education needs setting especially in understanding family as based on the marriage of a man and a woman.

He continued,

This is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society. Consequently, policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself.

He further affirmed,

The family unit is fundamental for the educational process and for the development both of individuals and States; hence there is a need for policies which promote the family and aid social cohesion and dialogue. It is in the family that we become open to the world and to life.

Following Pope Benedict XVI’s pronouncement that gay marriage is a threat to humanity’s future, representatives of affected groups have voiced conflicting opinions on the matter.

The words uttered by the Pope crafted mushrooms of opinion throughout the world, specifically to the Philippines, a country known to have several of religious beliefs.

Don’t call it a marriage
According to Assistant Executive Secretary of the CBCP Episcopal Commission for Family and Life Fr. Dave Clay, the main problem is calling it a marriage. “They can’t get married at all. It’s a contradiction. Marriage is between a man and a woman”. Fr. Dave clarified to an interview on News to Go, GMA News TV that he is not the enemy of gay men and women; he maintained that it is not possible for them (gays) to marry.

“If two men want to live together, what can I say? But don’t call it a marriage,” he emphasized, differentiating a live-in relationship, which he said is not a threat to humanity.

“Calling it marriage is a threat to humanity, because it’s not a marriage. It’s insulting God. God created marriage. God created Adam and Eve, a man and a woman. That’s what we believe as Christians, that’s what we believe as Catholics. And even non-Christians and non-Catholics believe that it’s between a man and a woman, so if you’re going to make another relationship and call that marriage, it’s insulting God,” Fr. Clay explained.

Fr. Dave Clay’s avowal is basically on what he know is right. He maybe a representation of the Roman Catholic’s side in the Philippines, who filled the 80.9% of the country’s population (digits are courtesy of http://www.indexmundi.com/philippines/demographics_profile.html).

Gross National Happiness
Contradicting the statement of Pope Benedict XVI, Ladlad Chairman Emeritus Danton Remoto said that the increased for gay marriage will encourage others to come out of the closet, this will result in an increase in the “gross national happiness” of Filipinos.

“Kasi ang closet para yang kabaong. It’s like a coffin, kung makalabas sila diyan, maging maligaya sila, tataas ang kanilang kaligayahan, yung gross national happiness ng Pilipino I think tataas. We can be happy, we can be gay,” he told News to Go co-anchor Kara David.

Same Sex Marriage or Gay Marriage will somehow be an unending-issue since people in this world have the right to follow what their minds and hearts are telling. Every matter has always two sides: it’s either Yes or No, Pro or Anti, Agree or Disagree, etc. Each idea has a power to be heard, whether it will accepted or rejected. The thing is on how people convey their ideas and how they respect others feelings.

Fit Your Feet With the Perfect Running Footwear

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 0

Ready, set, GO!!!
Trending: Marathons

Lots of Marathon events were now organized particularly for charity purposes. To give you a recall, the Philippines uphold around 32 marathons for the year 2011. The biggest goes for the Milo Marathon and the Run for the Pasig River which is participated by a record breaking 116,000 runners. Recently, another marathon project shakes the first month of the year as the Unity Run (Run for Free College Education) as organized by the UNTV 37 and it’s CEO Daniel Razon gathered a 209,000 registered running enthusiast – a far more achievement than the record set by the Pasig River Marathon.

Still, more and more marathon events are yet to come. And one of the important considerations before the actual event is how well you are prepared enough to run? If you are a serious runner, a marathon is a serious matter. To complete a marathon, you need a seemingly endless source of energy and a stamina that can take you from the beginning all the way to the finish line.

Most of us would want to worry last their running shoe. Yet, it must be included in your preparation list. By the time you start running, you must have the confidence in your shoe. In many ways the issues facing a marathon entrant are the same as those facing any other runner. But with the distances multiplied the amount of time you spend in your shoes is multiplied too. That means increased potential for discomfort or even injury. And so footwear choice becomes important.

There are three top requirements that a runner must consider in choosing his/her footwear:
1.)   
      1. It must fit your feet.
Avoid looking for a shoe that looks great; instead look for a shoe that fits perfectly to your feet. And to find the perfect shoe, first you must analyze what kind of feet you have.

Flat Footed : Pronation Suport
Flat-footed marathon runners tend to pronate more than usual, which can be limiting and dangerous for a runner.
A runner with flat feet needs to control that movement with motion control shoes. These are shoes that rigidly support the foot so that it wouldn’t pronate during a run. If you have flat feet, also look for padding at the arch area.

High Arche : Supination Control
The next foot type is high-arched, which tend to cause supination, and to reduce this, the runner needs cushioned shoes. There should be sufficient padding in the arch area, the insole, and the outsole. Shock absorption is also a must.

Normal Type/Arch : Neutral Running Shoes
The last and most common type of feet is the normal type or normal arched. It’s not easy to find a shoe for a neutral runner. You need to look for a shoe that provides just the right level of cushioning and support; this lies in between cushioned shoes and motion control shoes.

2.)    2. A Rebound Energy Provider
Since a marathon can be rather tiring, you can really use additional sources of energy that can pump you up even in the middle of the marathon. So why don’t you get shoes that can give you a powerful surge of rebounding energy? Try an Air-Sole cushioning units that provides the runner with a forceful push forward each time the foot lands. As the foot lands, the air-based cushioning units compress then slowly expand again. As it expands to its original height, it pushes the runner off the ground as well with added energy.

3.)   3.  Lightweight and Flexile
Imagine the scene. You are running a marathon, and the sun is beating down on you. You are perspiring and are running at your best. But your foot feels so heavy now, and it’s growing heavier with every step you take. Your foot muscles also feel strained. You feel yourself slowing down.
That’s what can happen if you choose the wrong shoe. In this case, the wrong shoe is a running shoe that’s heavy, bulky, and restrictive. This is why you need a lightweight and flexible running shoe. Flexibility is important so your feet can take free and efficient strides without having to exert force and energy.

Bear in mind these factors upon choosing your running shoe. To show you some proven and recommended brands that meet these standards, we’ve got a couple of shoe models below:

Mens Asics Gel Kinsei 2
Also known as Asics Kinsei
These pair  do offer a high level of cushioning which comes with a very stable ride too. These are not support shoes but they do guide your feet very well. While the shoe is not particularly the responsiveness is surprisingly good for such a protective shoe.

Mens Adidas Supernova Glide
Also known as Adidas Supernova Glide
The Supernova Glidemay not get as much recognition as some other shoes in this ‘neutral’ category. But the shoe has good cushioning with some spring to it, as well as a stable and nicely guide ride. But it also feels responsive enough to use for some faster running so you can use it for those swifter runs and sessions or just enjoy that responsiveness in your steady runs.



Mens Mizuno Wave Alchemy 8
Also known as Mizuno Alchemy 8
This is one shoe it was hard to know where to place in this list. It has more support than the shoes above it so could be higher up among the more protective models. But it feels light and responsive for such a protective shoe. The cushioning will suit heavier runners as well as lighter guys who have bigger over-pronation issues.



Mens Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8
Also known as Brooks Adrenaline
The Adrenaline GTS are another shoe that score well on all the key attributes which you would want a training shoe to offer. The cushioning works well and in combination with the support and flexibility you get a comfortable and smooth ride. The upper fit is good and the shoe is ideal for logging up the miles of training for a marathon.


Mens Nike Air Zoom Elite+ 4
Also known as Nike Air Zoom Elite+ 4
A good support shoe particularly if you are a forefoot or midfoot striker. Nice support and cushioning mean lighter runners can use this as a trainer but it is well up to faster work.

Mens Saucony Grid Fastwitch 3
Also known as Saucony Fastwich 3
A good support shoe particularly if you are a forefoot or midfoot striker. Nice support and cushioning mean lighter runners can use this as a trainer but it is well up to faster work.



Mens Nike Air Jasari+
Also known as Nike Jasari+
Okay, there are some more lightweight racers out there that some runners will fancy for a marathon. But we’re putting this down as the most minimal of our neutral offerings. The shoe has a smooth and responsive ride. The upper does not give a huge amount of support but fits well and holds your foot quite nicely, and the midsole does have a relatively stable feel to it.



As you take your first step in the marathon proper, be mindful that what truly matters in every race are neither the winners nor the quitters. As long as you fought for it all the way to the finish line, you’ve already extend your arm to the benefactors of every marathon event.

The Water Dragon Cuisine (A Chinese New Year’s Dinner Treat)

Monday, January 23, 2012 0
Beating of the drums echoed on the street. Market extends up to the sidewalks that feature varieties of circle-shaped fruits and tingling charms such as crystals and amulets.  Dragon dances were being performed in synchronize steps as money filled their red envelopes or “ampao” in return for each group exceptional performance. Almost half of the roaming crowds were in “red”. And lastly, piles of “tikoy” and aromas from Chinese cuisines scented the atmosphere implying a “Kong Hei Pat Choi” greeting.



January 23, 2012. No place in the Philippines would be busier on this day other than the China Ton in Carriedo Street, Manila. Chinese New Year is truly a remarkable holiday to Filipinos especially to our Chinese fellowmen. This event reflects how these people behaved and what they believed in most. They pour out money to buy presents, decoration, material, clothing and food which resembles their customs and traditions. Among these, the Chinese cuisines were the top priority on this celebration. As we witnessed how our Chinese brothers and sisters welcome the year of the water dragon, let me take you to a food experience that will surely satisfy your Chinese cravings.

On their new year’s eve, Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner known as Chu Xi. The venue will usually be in or near the home of the most senior member of the family. The New Year’s Eve dinner is very sumptuous and traditionally includes items such as pigs, ducks, chicken, and sweet delicacies. Some of these Chinese foods are consumed to usher in health, happiness and good fortune. Its names are also homophones for words that mean good things.

 And to serve the menus for the day, the following dishes then filled the tables: 


1.)    Buddha’s delight (kou ru)
An elaborate vegetarian dish served by Chinese families on the eve and on the first day of the New Year. It is a type of black-hair algae, pronounced as “Fat Choy” in Cantonese, is also featured in the dish for its name, which sounds like “prosperity”. 

2.)    Fish (Yu)
Usually eaten but not completely for the remains is stored in the overnight. Its name (yu) is a homophone for “surpluses”. The purpose of remaining some of it goes with the Chinese phrase “may there be surpluses (fish) every year”. 

3.)    Jau Gok (you jiao)
The Chinese new year main dumpling. It is believed to resemble ancient Chinese gold ingots. 

4.)    Jiao Zi (dumplings)
Eaten traditionally in Northern China because the preparation is similar to packaging luck inside the dumpling which is later eaten. 


           Mandarin Oranges (jin ju)
The most popular and abundant fruit during the Chinese new year. Its name is also a homophone of luck (jin) and fortune (ju). 

            Melon seed (kwatji)
Also includes other seeds such as sunflower and pumpkin. 

7.       Noodles
Families always served it uncut not only in the new year since it represents long life.

8.      Sweets
Sweets and similar dried fruits goods are stored in a red or black Chinese candy box. 

9.      Bakkwa (rou gan)
The Chinese salty-sweet dried meat, which is trimmed of the fat, sliced, marinated and then smoked for later consumptions or as a gift. 

1        Toro Cakes
Made from the vegetable taro as the cakes were cut into squares. 

1    Turnip cakes
A dish made of shredded radish and rice flour; it is usually fried and cut into small squares. 

Yusheng or Yeesang (yu sheng)
Raw fish salad that was said to bring good luck. It is usually eaten on the seventh day of the new year and throughout the year. 

           Nian Gao
Popularly known as tikoy. Nian Gao is considered as the Chinese new year pudding and the pronunciation of its name is a homophone for a “more prosperous year”. It is made up of glutinous rice flour, wheat, starch, salt, water and sugar
                                                         
It is not a pre-requisite to include all of these dishes on the Chinese New Year ’s Eve dinner. Though each symbolizes good things such as fortune and good luck, the real key to success depend on one’s attitude and perception. What truly marks our Chinese fellowmen are their patience and dedication to work. Also, they tend to set aside the bad things and distractions they’ve encountered and embraces with such positive outlook each coming year.

The new tagline of the Department of Tourism has launched by Secretary Mon Jimenez. Tagline had received several comments and reactions on the different social networking sites. – Detailing all bad sides, but generally not given any of its good.

But notwithstanding all bad comments and reactions, the new tagline has an extra impact, because it does not only focuses on the beauty of Pinas but mostly features the uniqueness of Filipino living.

“It’s more fun in the Philippines” has various insights that can truly invite foreigners to visit the Philippines.

Of course, its inhabitants.
The Pinoy per se, the living style of the Filipino that guaranteed as unique as compared to all other races.

Talking about these does not only implies Filipino owned delicacies, their beliefs and even festivities.

Simpler, and meeker thought . . . are their characters!
That has been adored by many. . .

Pinoys are. . .
Resilient.
Calamities and undesirable circumstances do not hinder their “smiling face”. Because of their strong fighting spirit, they can easily move on to all sufferings and even deaths.
 Generous.
Which can be seen during the times of unwanted situations. Through donations and gift of heart, the spirit of Bayanihan once again lives.
 Family centered.
The tradition of not living the house of parents can be visualized in this generation. Which is in contrast with what the other races do, the home for the aged is crowded and do not even has space for the others.
 God fearing.

Tagged as the only Christian Nation, the Filipinos have actually grown religious. Their different forms of worship and devotions to God have truly marked the history of religion all around the world.
 Good Samaritan.

Pinoys can actually sacrifice even their most precious time and thing for the sake of fellow men. Their blood is willingly poured without any sense of doubt.



These primary, the essence of the new tagline of the Department of Tourism because, truly, Pinoys have lots of things to offer. Not only in its priceless sceneries, unique delicacies and products but most of all, is the characters that urge the other races to visit the Philippines.
